Default Anyone touch up their oem front bumper with paint?

I just got a new oem bumper and it has a couple small scuffs that bug me. I am curious what others have used to touch the dings up.

Type of dark grey matte back paint?

Would be helpful -- is this a Sport with texture?? If Sport I used a black Sharpie on my 2013.. was much better, still okay 4 years now. Textured will not paint well. There are products to restore the black on the textured body parts.

You could mask it or take it off and spray the whole thing with bed liner.

Scrub it with a good brush and simple green, rinse well, then use Penetrol. Use a foam brush to apply it, don't get any on paint. Then buff it off with a microfiber. The bumper will look like new.

Thats interesting. How does it work?

it seems like the plastic is almost painted, but itís not. Thatís why I donít get how there is little white/cream color nicks or dings

You dab/ spread it on the plastic with a foam brush. Let it sit for a little while, maybe 10-20 minutes, then buff it off with a microfiber cloth. You need to do it on clean plastic, and it looks like new when done.
